We are very close to releasing our debut album and we want you to be in the know! Facebook and Instagram have their place but when you make a post it only gets shown to a small number of our fans, family and friends without paying Mark Z. Email is THE BEST for us to reach you! Don't worry, we'll only do it when something big is happening!
The Whelming Waters music is characterized by everything from catchy melodies to aching harmonies and ranges from raucous horn-laden romps to heartfelt country ballads; all combined with thoughtful lyrics and a healthy dose of humor.
They have performed at various venues, festivals and events in Pittsburgh and the surrounding areas including Mr. Smalls Theater, The Hard Rock Cafe and Deutschtown Music Festival to name a few. The band placed second in the 2018 Pennrock Scholarship Battle of the Bands and made their television debut on Good Day PA! in Harrisburg in 2019.
Recording of their debut full-length album with Daniel Blake Productions began in the winter of 2019 and shortly after, the band joined Pittsburgh-based record label Devil Inside Records. Leading up to the album release in the summer of 2020, The Whelming Waters plan to continue to grow their repertoire and fan-base and expand their live schedule in order to pursue their musical goals into the future.
Call it ambitious, but The Whelming Waters’ genre-bending debut album, “Bon Voyage” is sure to surprise and delight you. Despite containing tracks with various instrumentation influenced by a wide variety of musical styles including rock n roll, blues, folk, and country, just to name a few, “Bon Voyage” somehow still maintains a remarkable cohesive element that can only be described as the sound of The Whelming Waters.
As we get closer to release day, the album will begin to appear on virtually every music download and streaming service you may use. As of today, it is listed on the services below. Physical CDs will be available at live gigs and can be ordered through the Bandcamp link now.
Our two singles "Whiskey Song" and "Beautiful Lucy" are available now. In some cases, an album preorder will give you those songs immediately.
We are so happy to finally be sharing this, and we truly look forward to your comments and thoughts as we progress.
